>> thank you so much for joining us today. happy thanksgiving. "cnn newsroom" continues right now. thank you so much. have a great thanksgiving. i'm in for ashleigh banfield. happy thanksgiving to all. quiet, calm and day of celebration. israel and gaza a cease-fire still holding. one side claiming victory. here in the states the annual macy's thanksgiving day parade kicks off. we'll take you there. they risked their lives defending our freedom. they are sending messages to their loved ones here at home. >> hi, paula. i can't wait to see you.
8:01am
>> thank you for your support. >> shout out to my wife and my two sons. happy thanksgiving and go falcons. >> thanks so much for joining us. a lot of people in the middle east are separating now but for different reason. >> the cease-fire sendi ining eh days of fighting. the truce is now nearly 24 hours old and appears to be holding. hamas has declared a public holiday to mark what its leeades are calling a victory. the man being parade r for making it happen is morsi.
8:02am
let's begin with you. what is happening or not happening now? >> reporter: it's such a difference to what we were going through just 24 hours ago when the streets were completely deserted. we were seeing out going rockets and feeling many more incoming rounds. right now the streets are bustling with activity. people out and about. we did see those celebrations beginning very shortly after the cease-fire was announced. there was another gathering at midday today. people calling this a victory on the one hand for hamas. others really out just for the pure simple fact that now they can go out without fear of being caught up in the violence. many are under no illusion this
8:03am
is a long lasting solution. >> do people in gau sau feel like israel will honor the agreement and that this truce will hold. >> reporter: there's no trust between their history. something of a test period to s see. it's currently negotiated in egypt right now with egypt continuing. the next phase is going to be whether or not the various restrictions on movements across the border. the israelis have said they will consider that. not entirely.
8:04am
# this is very much a first step at this point in time. >> thanks so much. fred, what's the situation there right now? >> reporter: well, the people here are also quite happy that there's no many rockets raining down on them. what you're not going to be seeing here on the israeli side is celebration. that's because people believe that hamas will regroup and fire rockets at israel again. here is what some people told me today. after a week long military operation and rocket barrages fired from gaza you were they're trying to get back to normal. in the town that suffered through so many air raid alarms this is the first time he can
8:05am
take his kid shopping without fear. >> you feel like you're back to life. >> reporter: you won't see people celebrating the cease-fire here. many saying it's did achieve the main objective of stopping rocket attacks. many fear the fire from gaza will start again as it has in the past. >> i think the government must go onto stop it for good. >> you think hamas is the winner then? >> maybe. yeah. i think hamas win. >> reporter: life was put on hold for most residents during the conflict. schools were closed and most businesses as well. many stayed indoors if they
8:06am
didn't have to go outside. now the mayor is busy getting the town up and running again. he says he believes rockets will be raining on his town again in the not too distant future. >> maybe the cease-fire will be a few day, few months. i don't think it will be more than a few months. >> reporter: it's not just the people trying to get back to normal. there have a large standing station here. many of the soldiers are packing up their gear and getting ready to leave this area. tanks, armored personnel carrier and a lot of other heavy equipment will return to their barracks. tens the tho of thousands of re. some feel the need to pray if not for peace then for a period of quiet.
8:07am
>> a lot of skepticism among israelis and soldiers whether it will last. what more are you hearing? >> reporter: most people believe it's not going to last. they believe that hamas is still there and still in power. they're going to regroup and try to smuggle weapons into gaza again. that's one of the big sticking points. hamas was able to smuggle so many weapons in. people here have seen all of this in the past. they've seen agreements before. they've seen israel forces go into gaza. it's always been the same that several months later they have found rockets raini ining down their heads again. people don't believe it's a long term solution. it's not something where i can see a lot of optimism.
8:08am
people have kept their children inside for the better part of last week because they were afraid to take them out. >> thanks so much. here in the states some people are giving up their traditional thanksgiving holiday to help others in new york and new jersey. they're helping areas hit hard by superstorm sandy. >> you ready to do this thing? >> these volunteers are spending the day lending a hand on staten island. volunteers are treating storm victims to a special having day deal. give me an idea what kind of turn out is expected and how grateful i'm sure people there are.

[ male announcer ] this is bob, a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested.
8:16am
but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners.
8:17am
talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.

susan rice is fighting back. she's been the target over her comments. senator john mccain and other lawmakers have been bashing her. now rice is saying no words in defending herself. what is rice saying? >> reporter: i wouldn't say she is bringing in new information. it's really what this administration has been saying from multiple sources. john mccain and some of the other republicans are accusing her of lying and misleading the american public and the
8:19am
congress. she says she was given talking points that were preparing by the intelligence committee. now on the personal comments by john mccain, she is politely diplomatically firing back at him. >> when discussing the attacks at our facilities i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. everyone particularly the intelligence community has worked in good faith to provide the best assessment based on the information available.
8:20am
>> reporter: she hopes when they're able to talk or clarify the situation that she would explain what she says right there. congress has been looking into multiple committees, having hearings on that but more importantly there's an n fbi investigation and a state investigation. they are looking very definitively into all aspects of this and that report should be coming out in december. could slip but that's it. >> jill, rice also said she looks forward to being able to have further dialogue with senator john mccain and others. does that indicate or set the ground work that she believes that the white house will be nominating her for that u.s. secretary of state job? >> reporter: that is a good
